The Song by Chris Fabry ~ Review

The SongLucie's Review:

Jed King is on a search to find and sing his own song, one different from his forebears and their broken families that came before, something new and his own, but he keeps falling back into old habits. But when he meets Rose, everything changes... for awhile anyways, until the old temptations come back to haunt him once again.

"When even the wisest men are fools in love, can true love persevere?"

This was a difficult book to read, with the foreboding sense that things would only get worse as the story progressed. Jed King grew up in a troubled and broken family, with many of the roots leading back to his relationship with his father, a singer/songwriter. Rose and and Jed's relationship is a bright spot in this rather hard to read account, I love how they met, fell in love, and their shared respect for each other at the beginning of their relationship.

I really liked Rose's dad, he had a gruff exterior, but he really was a great dad who just wanted the best for his daughter.

I felt so bad for Rose who had to live without Jed for long stretches at a time while raising their sweet little son, Ray. But I liked that she had a great friend at church to help her when things were tough.

Overall, a well written story about the struggle and toil that fame can take on personal relationships as well as the temptations. I wouldn't really say that this is a book I would read again anytime soon, because it was just so hard when I knew things would only get worse. I wished that the book had focused more on him making things rights, instead of him going so wrong. A tale of love, forgiveness, and redemption.
